I’m going to describe an experience I commonly have and seem to be becoming more consciously aware of.
Then I would like you to tell me if what I’m describing counts as a trance and if so, then what level of trance.
Okay so please imagine this situation.
You are in bed barely waking up.
Your sense of conscious thought, memory, and awareness are all turned down to the lowest possible setting without being completely off.
The line between dreaming and conscious visualization is extremely blurry so after getting out of this state, you can’t tell if you were really dreaming or just semi-consciously imagining.
Due to having such a low turned down sense of conscious thought, you can’t really do anything Magick because you are not able to really consciously think…
“hey this is a perfect time for visualization practice”.
In fact your sense of conscious thought and awareness is so low that the only thoughts you can or do have are limited to whatever fantasy you are flowing through so you are not thinking of wether you are awake, asleep, dreaming, imagining, or whatever else.
Your barely conscious mind is fully absorbed into the present moment of whatever you are either dreaming or semi-consciously imagining until your brain fully wakes up for the day.
Seems like due to the line between dreaming and semi-consciously imagining being so blurry, mental imagery/barely conscious visualization is much stronger.
If I could just be in a bit more of a consciously aware or controlled version of this, everything I visualize would be much stronger, clearer, more immersive, and so on.
Is this a trance?
If so, then what level of trance?
How can I enter this state of being more consciously and use it for Magick instead of just flowing through a meaningless fantasy?
